The Sort operation is a core part of many critical applications. Despite the large efforts to parallelize it, the fact that it suffers from high data-dependencies vastly limits its performance. Multithreaded architectures are emerging as the most demanding technology in leading-edge processors. These architectures include Simultaneous Multithreading, Chip(More)

As database management systems gain importance in our everyday life, it is essential to have efficient implementations of important database operations such as the hash join. Improvements in processor architectures including simultaneous multithreaded architectures and Chip Multiprocessors have opened opportunities for taking advantage of the new(More)
Modern architectures have made considerable increases in processor speed and performance. However, Database Management Systems (DBMSs) fall far short from achieving their ideal performance. DBMSs are widely used in almost every large organization. Therefore, it is important to achieve fast data retrieval and processing. Recent studies have shown that more(More)
